Hi, I am trying to get my information to align top left in a cell and to wrap the text automatically and it's not doing that in Windows 7.  I use to not have any problems with this but it just started.  What can I do to correct it?
Thanks

It should be as simple as right clicking on the cell, select Format Cells, click the Alignment tab, select Vertical: Top and check the Wrap text box.
If this doesn't work then maybe post a spreadsheet here for us to see what's going on.
What version of Excel are you using?

Okay, I right clicked on the cell and went to format. Please see Pic 1.  I noticed that unlike in Windows XP, I don't have any tabs.  The Excel version is 2007 and am using Windows 7.  So, does that mean that 2007 version will not work with Windows 7?No tabs

Sorry. I don't have Excel 2007 so am unable to help further. Hopefully someone else can assist you.

Even if you are not going to assign the points, it would be nice if you share what your solution was so others may benefit. You can then accept your own answer.

For some unknown reason, when I click on a particular cell and select format, I only get the Font tab.  If I click on another cell I see all the tabs.  The one that was most helpful was akb so if anyone should get points, it should be him.
Hi camtz,
I think I may know what is going on. If you are editing a cell and you right click and select Format cells, you will only be given the Font tab. This allows you to change part of the text within a cell. If you press Enter and then right click on the cell and select Format cells, you should be able to see all the tabs.
